I was looking to do that a couple weeks back but as a webbased solution -- tried framemaker (old beta copy) -- wasn't impressed. 
Two solutions: both python based. (which should be on your system already.)

Anyway -- since I'm using zope -- there is a zopepdf module which might be of interest. I wasn't going to change my html tp ps to pdf for a website that was going to get a lot of hits.

Python to PDF is also really nice. Reportlab might be helpful. Or just use py2pdf.py -- it'll be on the python homepage....search for it.

Just in case going to ps then to pdf is just too much hassle.
